Sky Watch Friday, Sunrise Service


Although I felt “sick as a dog” with a bad cold the promise of a beautiful sunrise forced me up before the dawn to travel to a nearby country church.

The sunrise did not disappoint and the church provided framing for the gorgeous awakening of the day.

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors. I don't get up early enough for sunrise shots - mostly sunsets for me ;-)

Love this picture! My mother (born in PA) had a hobby of taking pictures of church steeples. We lost her unexpectedly just before Christmas. She would love your picture. Thank you.
